The gorgeous landscape of Virginia stretches from the Appalachian Mountains to the Chesapeake Bay. If you love activities in the great outdoors, head west and visit Shenandoah National Park, a hiker's paradise that offers over 500 miles of trails with spectacular waterfalls, lush forests and wildlife. To the east, Washington, D.C. brims with history, culture and natural beauty. You can also paddle the Potomac, visit Lincoln Memorial and the Smithsonian Museums, or take a guided tour of the many other historical sites in and around the U.S. Capitol. Travel the coast of the Chesapeake Bay to experience some of the best fishing in Virginia, or spend the day in Virginia Beach for some relaxation, great shopping, or a little sand and surf.
